Hey Duke! Here's my take on this. Thanks for the lesson.
Sounds real nice, Marty! You've got a smooth style that you only get after years of playing and it sounds great. Thanks a lot for the kind words and the advice regarding creating a count-in track with iReal and so forth. Take care.
Hey Duke! Great song, of course. I was heavily imprinted by the great version by Erroll Garner so it'll be an interesting challenge for me to think of it on guitar.
On the track: it's really hard to come in on the groove without a count-in, even with the drum roll setting it up. Additionally, since the melody normally begins with pickup notes, there's no time to play them. I'm just completely confused by how to come in with the melody by what's on the track.
Could you record yourself playing along with the track as provided, so I can hear how you would play over it?
Hey, great videos on this one! Cool stuff, Charlie and Marty!
Hope you enjoy my take on this, Duke! I'm using my Harmony Statotone that I'm guessing is about a 1960. Thanks for the inspiration.
Many thanks for the kind words and the advice!
Hey Duke! Here's one for you. Hope youi like it! Bruce
Thanks Duke! Much appreciated!
Wow, fabulous playing Matthew! Very cool stuff.
Hey Duke! Here's my take on this. This really is a fun tune to play! Thanks for the great lesson!
Wow, thanks a lot, Duke!
Hey Duke! So here is my humble attempt. Hope you and the Duchess are well. Happy Birthday to Minnie. Be well. Thanks, Bruce
Bruce - great job! If you ever want to correspond my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to your contributions which are always fun. This one is exceptional. Thanks again.
Thanks Duke. That suggestion to think the initial notes in your head, but not to play them is really interesting. I've been practicing that and it's amazing how T-Bone-y it can sound. There's a story I heard once that Mercer Ellington reluctantly showed his Dad some arrangement he was working on. Duke took the score and didn't add or change anything except to cross out big sections of it. He handed it back to Mercer without saying a single word. Mercer said he was so upset that he didn't even look at what Duke had done for weeks. But when he finally looked at it again, he realized how much better it was with those sections removed. So that reminds me of the T-Bone way of playing -- being able to self-edit to keep just what is essential and giving the overall phrase more interesting spaces.
Hey Duke! Here's my stab at this one. What a great tune, and a real fun backing track to play with. Let's hope for better times to come in this crazy world, and if it's not asking too much, lord, please send me more guitars. :-) Take care Duke.
Wow, thanks Duke!
Hey Duke! Here's my attempt. I kind of like the tone. I'm using one of those little Spark modeling practice amps and I feel like I'm playing through a Marshall stack! :-) My solo is a bit quirky here and there, but I wanted to get something down where I wasn't thinking about it too much or getting tense trying to get something mistake free, so I'm just playing to have fun and go for it. I'll be curious to hear your reaction! Thanks as always for the great lesson!
Alright Bruce, Good to hear you going for it. Really nice raw energy here! There's a nice tension that fits the tune here. Kinda has a intensity about it. Good going buddy! Duke
Hey Duke! "Please Send Me Someone To Love" is one of my all time favorites! I have a 78 of it! "Lost MInd" is, of course, incredible too. I think Mose Allison must have been very influenced by Percy. Great stuff! Looking forward to working on this.
Hi Bruce, It's definably one of or maybe even the best of the blues ballads by anyone! And it's fun to play also. Duke
Beautiful stuff, Marty!
